Mountain Biking Corral Trail

*****   Add a review
#34 of 1,003 mountain bike trails in California
#595 in the world

This is a wonderful quick downhill type of trail. It is very fun for all levels. It actually starts with the Armstrong Connector trail at the top of the paved road. You can either park at the bottom of the road in the large parking lot and ride up the steep 4 miles to the top of Armstrong Connector or 2 miles up to the halfway point parking lot where the actual Corral trail section starts, or you can get shuttled up either part. Armstrong connector is very fun and fast, there are options to take such as log rides, and rocks to ride over. The trail opens up after the first 1/2 mile to a fast tight single track with some beautiful views of Lake Tahoe, (if you're going slow enough to see the view that is). This section of the trail switches back to the road. Then you continue the trail on the right side up to the actual Corral trailhead. If you are a little more novice we suggest you take the Sidewinder Trail. If you are able to do mandatory rock gardens take the Corral trail. Either trail you take ends up meeting and turning into one trail about a mile down. This section has fun logs rides, table top/ rock lipped jumps, small drops and all sorts of fun. Most of it is avoidable for the more novice. It ends at the Powerline trail (actual powerlines above) you go over the bridge and follow the dirt road back to the parking lot. If you have any questions contact us. Shoreline of Tahoe 775-580-7722. Enjoy!

    Awesome trail that varies from natural features at the top to fun jumps and flow track at the bottom. All man made features are optional. Easy access from South Lake Tahoe to ride or shuttle.

    This trail is awesome. You may get faced from an uphill dirt bike or just landed on by a John Smith or a Danimal when they decide to get rad on the table tops... Wear protection, it can get wet and wild

    All the trails in this area are great, especially after some rain. I went up Cedar, Sidewinder, and the Armstrong connector and these are fun even going uphill. Then back down the Armstrong connector, which had some rock sections, and down Corral which had more rock sections and a ton of huge tabletops at the end. Very fast and fun trails. If you prefer smooth and flowy, take Sidewinder and Cedar, and if you prefer some rocks and tech features thrown in stick with Corral. This trail should be much more highly rated as it instantly became one of my favorites in California. They are similar to the Funner/Tiddlywinks trails in Bend, OR. Shuttle is also possible via a parallel fire road.
